The Altered Echo Project…
is honored to present – AEP11: Mimetik – Handmade Songs for Handmade People

Out Now

It’s the release we’ve been waiting on since before we began and our final release of 2014…

Handmade Songs for Handmade People

Hinting at past offerings, Handmade Songs is a nine track a collection of works that totally stand on their own yet somehow remains very true to the artists form. Don’t expect Paths, don’t expect Dead Man, but expect something honest that will reach you in whatever place in life that you find yourself sitting now.

Stems & Samples Done Differently…

As with all our previous releases we are making avaliable samples intended for manipulation in original works based upon this material. However, this time it’s a bit different. Mimetikhas agreed to provide you, our listener turned artist, with output data from Reaktor and PD patches that were used in the creation of this release. The use of the audio in this way brings new opportunities for original works to be born from the old and submitted back to us for possible republication via this project. Clicking the banner below will start a download of this unique and additional release content…

Preview – It’s A Long Distance From Here To Eternity

Taking off the Mask…

Thinking of the way to best present our final release of 2014 has been on my mind for quite a while now. Normally it’s a piece with fancy verbiage, imagery, ambiguous terms, and a little bit of hype. For our eleventh offering in the AEP catalog I’ve decided to go another way…

I formally met Mimetik in June of 2012 just prior to his debut release on the IDMf NetalbelIDMf037: Paths. Truth be told I knew him before that formal meeting but I knew him not as Mimitek but as one who called himself unknown__artist. What I quickly picked up in the conversation he and I had was here is a man who is truly passionate, not only about making music, but a man who is equally passionate about experimentation within the realm.

Shortly thereafter Paths was released and my perspective on what music should be totally changed…

It’s not very often that something like that can change you in some way and ever since I’ve been chasing every bit of his music I can find, and fighting the urge of trying to recreate what he does in my work, and calling it my own.

Aaron and I began preparing for the launch of the Altered Echo Project just a little shy of two years ago to the day I sit here typing this. The first artist we contacted about doing a release through the project was Mimetik and nearly a year would pass until I received a reply. The reply revealed a man invested in his art to the extent of isolation and the reply also revealed a man committed to not just doing more of the same…

I could easily make Paths II” is what he said, but that was something by which he was unwilling to abide. Paths II, oddly enough, was exactly what I was wanting. In stark contrast to the bright glitchy rhythms found in the record I have listened to more than any other since it’s release, his answer came in the form of I Am a Dead Man which was released on Xylem Records 15 July, 2013.

Once again the Altered Echo Project would remain to wait…

Roughly two years after Paths release, two years after the beginnings of AEP, and a little over a year off Dead Man’s heels, the wait is finally over. Coming to you October 28th, 2014 is the release we’ve been waiting on since the projects inception. It’s music that represents yet another evolution in the life of an artist, aptly titled…

The Altered Echo Project…
is honored to Present – AEP010: Dataf1ow – All At Once

**Out Now**

To say what we have for our tenth release fuses nearly every type of music imaginable would be an understatement. To call it Fusion would be naive. Simply put; what we have for you here represents a veritable melting pot of styles, themes, and genres, formed into one single release, which brings it all together and serves it straight to you…

All At Once

Out Today – August 15th, 2014

–Stem & Sample Information–

As with all our previous releases extra insight, in the form of a sample pack, is provided with the EP deconstructed into separate audio files for all your remix needs. Dataf1ow has been kind enough to stem out EVERY TRACK on the clickable tracklisting found below.

Use them, abuse them, do with them what you will. It is our hope however that you, our listener turned artist, will find inspiration in what you hear and submit new works spawned from the old, back to us for possible republication through this project. We will always be accepting submissions for mutations of this work and any of our previous releases. However, please keep your eyes peeled for further information as related to the defined competition in the mutation of sound, that will be centered around this release.

The Altered Echo Project in partnership with In Space and Time Records proudly present…

JazzyspoonA Product of my Environment: Competition in the Mutation of Sound…

AEP banner smaller

As of today, June 1st 2014, the Altered Echo Project is officially accepting submissions for mutations of the newest release from

Jazzyspoon & In Space and Time Records 

If you have yet to hear this amazing release, from an artist who refuses to be pinned down by genre, you can check it out below. It’s a listen which demands attention, and any audiophiles dream. So have a seat, turn it up, press play, and enjoy the 10 track journey that is

 A Product of my Environment 

Physical copies of this release can be purchased from the ISAT bandcamp page linked above or by CLICKING HERE

Nuts n’ Bolts…

Submissions for mutations will be running for a 45 day period and closing Tuesday July 15th2014 at Midnight Eastern Standard Time. Once we collect the submissions the tracks will be judged and the track listing will be selected. The winning tracks will be skillfully mastered by Mike Watts and the release itself will receive a full promotional campaign from both The Altered Echo Project and In Space & Time. The only thing we ask is that you keep your tracks to a min -3 db (-5 preferred) with nothing on the master bus. Please keep your tracks PRIVATE and privately share them with us via The AEP SoundCloud. Dropbox links are also acceptable but please stay away from e-mail attachments.

Samples & Procedures

Jazzyspoon has been so kind as to stem out eight full tracks from his release. A quick listen through the release will reveal that the content contained within these individual sets of samples is any musicians dream. The list of available tracks is as follows, keep reading for instructions on obtaining links…

Good To Be Here – Bigger Pictures – Chainletter –  Daydreamwalkers –  Revolver

Great North Wet – The Long Trip Home –  What Happens In Waves

Being as one cannot even begin to accurately value something of this nature in terms of dollars and cents we have opted instead to trade them out for an e-mail address. The provided e-mail address will be kept private between AEP / ISAT and will not be released to any third party for any reason. The primary reason for this tit for tat exchange, besides tracking who gets what, is for purposes of artist followup between the competition holders and the participants. This effort is made to not only put together a fantastic release but also to build relationships within this creative community of people going forward.

So…

If you would like to request one, or a few, of these amazing collections of sounds please send an e-mail to:

alteredechoesproject@gmail.com 

Tell us who you are, what tracks you want, and we’ll send over direct link for download of whatever tracks you like, within 24 hours of receipt of your request. We’re real people, with real lives and real jobs, so don’t hold us to the fire if it takes 25, but most of the time it probably won’t even take 12.

Please keep in mind that the primary initial purpose of these sample sets are for use in this competition. So, please, keep your requests limited only to tracks you plan on actually remixing. Once your submission is received, if you would like links to any others, just let us know and we’ll be all too happy to comply.

Finally…

The Altered Echo Project wishes to thank Brandon K. Morris, Wayne Baker, and all the other heads at In Space & Time for giving us the opportunity to take this wonderful material one step further. Thanks be to Jason Pottorff  aka Jazzyspoon for putting together this top shelf material and so graciously providing to the community in this way.

We’d also like to thank YOU our listener turned artist for checking out our project and participating in this release. Please direct any correspondence or questions to the e-mail provided above. We look forward to hearing from YOU in the very near future.
